Blue Lagoon by Lesley

I had so much fun creating my piece this week. Had absolutely no idea what i was making, or where i was going with it. 

I started out with a chunky piece of wood (pinched from work!) Around the edges of the circle was given a thick coat of crackle paste. And the top was covered with more crackle paste, sand texture paste and glass bead gel. When it was dry, i covered it with spray inks and shimmery waxes. I chopped up a curly vine, painted the bits and glued them to the edges of the wood.

The little metal thingymebob had a base made out of two wooden cogs glued together and painted. I drilled a hole in one of the mini hearts, painted it, gloss gel and micro beads on top. And then hung it from a small piece of chain.

I created 4 ATC's using the same colour palette as the wood. 

I used the rest of the curly vines and another mini heart to decorate the ATC's

Thanks for looking.
